Friday (day of abstinence)

Fasting: Day 5

“The days will come, when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast.” (Matthew 9:15)

Intentions: That we may realize more fully the purpose of Friday as a day of penance and abstinence, as the day when Christ was crucified; that those who have fallen away from faith may again find the Bread of Life.

Action: Unite your sacrifices and sufferings to Christ’s on the cross, offering them up in reparation for sins of the world and for conversion of sinners.
